Historically, women were deemed too weak and fragile to withstand the rigors of running, some even told running could harm their reproductive capabilities.
By the ’70s women could enter shorter distance road races in the USA, but couldn't officially enter a marathon on the same course as the men—and ensure their results would be counted—until 1972.
Spread the word in style.
